Hmm,

So no takers on the airliner - better add a clue then - biplane help?

:)

(Oh, it's also even older than me, before Jamie makes that comment :) )

Oh she was mate - not sure if any survive, beautiful in a way that only the aircraft of that era before WWII were - Getting to the more obvious clues now - the initials HP should give it away :)

Silly me, thinking it was a Sikorsky "LeGrand".

I'm guessing the Handley-Page HP42.

Sorry about the delay, I've been trying to recover some images MrsW took  from the camera mem card that
I may have deleted.

The largest of my type, only 20 were built.

I'm still thinking Shorts though....

Will have to wait for another clue I guess :)

The only way I can have a chance at getting any of these planes is to use google,
 it's a great experience anyway, looking at all the different aircraft as you search :)


Built around 20 years ago, it was a capable aircraft , yet generated little interest.

I think I speak for everyone here when I say, a bit more clue would be nice...

Me I guess...:)

Not exactly the prettiest aircraft on earth, but damned functional, I've flown it, comes from Ireland (Figured I'd put in a quick one, as the Bishop said to the Actress ;) )

I do love this thread, but more from sorting out what the hell you buggers have found this time :)

Cheers :)

A lot slower than the Vamp, seen rather a lot in the Middle East - I flew one, for very complex reasons, in Oman.

That's not much of a clue though, twin engined, very slim nacelles.
